Bettie Dreadful is one of my favorite models to work with, between us we have created some truly amazing images from 1950s pin-up girls at camber sands to the more dramatic film noir theme which we are both continuing to explore. My inspiration is drawn from the likes of Rembrandt, Ansel Adams, Film Noir films of the 1940 – 1958 such as Double Indemnity, Gilda, On Dangerous Ground, The Big Sleep, Touch of Evil, and Stanger on the third Floor.
